What does it mean to trip on DXM?

A “trip” is a slang term referring to the effects some DXM users say they feel when they take high doses (more than you are supposed to take) of cough medicine with DXM. Any DXM trip has the potential to be dangerous. When “tripping,” some users describe different “plateaus” ranging from mild distortions of color and sound to visual hallucinations, dissociative sensations, and loss of motor control, along with other side effects such as confusion, dizziness, double or blurred vision, slurred speech, impaired physical coordination, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, rapid heart beat, drowsiness, numbness of fingers and toes, and disorientation.
